    News Brief: Blood Tribe March in Nashville

    A trial balloon for a new format. Relatively brief, topical, news update episodes. We might do more of this going forward.
    This one is a response to the recent march of masked neo-nazis waving swastika flags through Nashville, Tennessee. We talk about the group involved, Blood Tribe, and their leader, attitudes, and associates.

    124: The Collapse of the National Justice Party

    We're back.  It's cool.  What isn't cool is the National Justice Party.  Because it doesn't exist any more.  And it wasn't cool when it did.  It was shit.  And that's why... well, listen to the episode.

Johnnto ,

Highly recommend

Jack and Daniel skewer the far right in this funny and engaging podcast. Challenging content to consume due to the nature of the topic but it is presented tastefully and is respectful where appropriate. I have recommended this pod to a centre right colleague and even they have found the thoughtful critique (right and occasionally left) valuable.

DDavidMoran ,

Fly paper for centrists flogs

A lot of reviews here seem to have been left by centrists who wanted to laugh at stupid racists and were saddened to discover that they’re also part of the problem 🤷‍♂️

I think it’s an entertaining and informative programme for anyone who *doesn’t* find the hosts’ assessments are cutting them. little too close to the bone.

Cpt cockpuncher ,

👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

I’m from Australia and we’re been getting more and more right wing extremists in our parliament and the mainstream media
This show is very informative and I’ve got a lot of information. We have our own trump lovers, proud boys & a local vanguard branch of 1 person. Thank you for doing your podcast and give it a listen
